I am new to Flash CS4 and have been practicing creating buttons. I am using a JPEG image for the actual button. The image changes color and size depending on the up state or down state or over state. Everything looks exactly as I want it but now I wish that I would had added text next to the button to let the user know what the button does when they mouse over. Herein lies my question. If I go back into the button symbol editting mode, can I add some text next to the JPG for the "over" state? That way when the user mouses over that "contact us" would appear off to the side of the button? Thanks!
Some things are easiest resolved by trying. Yes, you can put just about anything you want in a button frame. You can add extra layers if it makes it easier to isolate different pieces.
Create a new layer inside button editing mode, create keyframes for states (over, up or down) and add text to your icon (f.ex. below it).
